a creative mind at work in the deep dark basement

Monday, February 25, 2013


WOW, I have to say it's been awhile since I spent a few hours in my studio creating just for fun and this weekend I made it a point to work my way through some road blocks (mainly my mojo and time).  

I set out to create a lot for fun this weekend (I did get some design team projects completed as well).  I wrote out the list of the SCS challenges going on and then a list of other challenges I wanted to play in.

I hope you will bear with my LONG post today as I share an array of cards.  As I was telling my friend I was creating like crazy, I realized that almost ALL of my photos have a floral focal point.  What can I say?  I love the floral stamps!!!!

Hope your Monday is starting off well and that I might be able to spark a little creativity for you.  I know I've counted on all of you at one time or another to spark mine :-)

What a beautiful group of cards! I particularly like the pops of blue in the first two. I came over from retrosketches because I love that blue ribbon and the dimensional flower! Thanks for joining us at retrosketches!
